Thank you for your interest in the Fisheries Resource Volunteer Corps (FRVC). The FRVC is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) Public Benefit Corporation for charitable and public purposes, operating under the United States Forest Service “Volunteers in the National Forests Program”, governed by the Volunteers in the National Forests Act of 1972.
Some of the tasks that we perform in our volunteer work are as follows:
Remove illegal fire rings, graffiti, recreational dams and trash left by forest visitors
Assist with conservation projects, planting trees and removing invasive plants
Perform stream surveys to document the changes from one season to another
Repair and replace damaged Forest Service and DFG trail signs
Staff Forest Service Information & Visitor Centers and sell Adventure Passes
Assist the Dept of Fish & Game with surveys to determine the quality of the fishery
Participate in work projects that occasionally provide the opportunity to camp over night
Supervise service projects working with youth groups
The diversity of projects and patrols available offers each person a chance to participate in an activity that meets their individual interest. We would suggest that you participate in one or two patrols near you, before attend our Training Program.
You can view the calendar for upcoming events, which you are welcome you to participate in.
